NEP has opened a new office in the Middle East, offering both on-site and remote production services.
The office, based at the Khalifa Park in Abu Dhabi, will be overseen by Saeed Izadi, who has been appointed president of NEP Middle East. He will continue to oversee the company’s Singapore and India businesses.
NEP has worked on a number of sporting events in the region, including Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 and 2022, the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s T20 World Cup and T10 Cricket, and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Fight Island. In addition, NEP’s creative technology business provides a full set of live event audiovisual solutions to clients throughout the MENA region.
Ammar Hina has also joined the company as business development director for the MENA region. Throughout his career in broadcast and TV production, Hina has worked on the likes of the FIFA World Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, AFC Asian Cup, UEFA Champions league, and Premier League live programming.
“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Ammar to NEP to spearhead our efforts for this very important market,” said Izadi. “His expertise is enabling us to build a strong team locally while delivering superior service and innovative solutions for our clients located in the Middle East as well as international clients looking to share the events taking place in this great region with the rest of the world.”
